Medical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal in Indiana


Indiana is known as the Hoosier state. After decades of debate, the question of where ‘Hoosier’ came from has not been completely answered. However, there are clues in Indiana’s rich history that may explain the namesake.


One popular theory is that the word was derived from the local dialect, and was actually slang for “who’s there?” Another theory is that it refers to corn, as the Indian word for the vegetable is ‘Hoosa’, being the commonly grown cop in the region. However, the most likely answer relates to a contractor from early 1800s, named Hoosier, who hired the majority of his workers from Indiana, and his workforce became known as the “Hoosier’s men”. Regardless of this mystery, Indiana has established itself as a prosperous, engaging and colorful state, well known for a number of things.

Let's start with basketball. Indiana’s love for basketball runs deep and historically the state has produced more professional basketball players per capita than any other American state. In fact, the state has sent nearly 500 players to the National Basketball Association (NBA).

The there's racing. For over a century every May during Memorial Day weekend hundreds of thousands of fans flock to Indianapolis to watch the Indy 500, a race that is considered as one of the gems in the Triple Crown of Motorsport. Held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the Indy 500 has spawned it's own style of open-wheel, open-cockpit racing simply known as Indy Car Racing. 

Also synonymous with Indiana is ice cream. The state is ranked second nationally in terms of ice-cream production and in 2011 it produce 87 million gallons of the sweet treat, from only 19 factories, in just 1 year. With all of that ice cream, Hoosiers are glad that they can rely on Indiana’s robust healthcare system, which caters to its 6.7 million residents. And Daniels Health will be there to help. Daniels Health is a leading American biohazardous and medical waste management solution provider, proud to service the healthcare facilities of Indiana.
